Eevi Rola is an award-winning actress and a filmmaker born in Helsinki, Finland. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, which she received in 2018 after studying at the New York Film Academy in New York and Los Angeles. Having studied both on the east and west coast, she has a broad view of the film industry.
While finishing her acting degree, she took a significant step on the other side of the camera, developing an extensive set of skills in filmmaking. This has helped Eevi on her artistic journey, as she began to work in the art department for prestigious projects as well as with brands like Levi’s, Calpak, and Shapermint. While she focused on the work behind the camera, her thesis project “Easy Street” rushed to win awards globally. Rola got nominated for her acting performance as “Sydney” in over a dozen film festivals.
She is currently staying busy and working in the industry back in Finland while keeping her ties to both LA and NYC. Once it’s safe to travel, she wants to continue her journey both in Europe as well as in the United States.
